Sonoma Bike Launches

Dynacraft launches Sonoma Bike, exclusively online

… a new line of adult bicycles designed to offer today’s rider superior value and performance. With bikes designed for both serious riders and recreational riders, Sonoma will debut with eight models for men and women ranging from the Karma Beach Cruiser ($249) to the top of the line CN:7 full carbon fiber road bike ($2,499) … Online sales are a core strategy for Dynacraft SRG. Based on the success we’ve had with selling some of our other models online, we’ve decided to sell Sonoma exclusively through its own website

sonoma_bikes.jpg Is there finally a market for online bike sales? Many have tried and failed with various strategies – I met a fellow roadie who was riding an Airborne a couple weeks ago.

I’m thinking, probably and you can bet the purchasers will take those to their local IBD. Dynacraft SRG also markets Tony Hawk’s Huckjam Bikes.

The Dura-Ace DL

Heard the chatter, talk, rumors, and various discussions about 09 Dura-Ace? So have we and a reader just sent us a link to Roues Artisanales. A tech site that’s gathered all known DA data to date in once place. And, finally!, DA is routing cables along the bar and with hoods that are Campy style or SRAM style.

Favourite Handlebar Wrap

IMG_3380.jpg

I have this thing about wrapping handlebars…perhaps an obsession. When I was still a novice, I once took an hour wrapping and re-wrapping the same handlebar which led to another hour of lovers’ spat with my exasperated girlfriend. I have on occasion wrapped a bar with brand new tape, only to rip it off moments later after I decided it was “wrong for the bike.” I have also carefully transferred tape and re-applied it to three bikes over a period of two years. I have crashed on some tape repeatedly, bolstering it with electrical tape until the original wrap was barely visible. When I go to Japan, I stock up on coloured electrical tape because I think that Japanese electrical tape works best for finishing the terminal end of the handlebar wrap. One time, an ex-teammate drove an hour and half to have me work my handlebar wrap magic on his new bike.

At this point, I have a plethora of preferences for wrap.
